LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

What is the top landmark in the United States? If you ask the folks at TripAdvisor, it's right here in Las Vegas.

The travel website has released its list of the top 10 U.S. landmarks, and the Fountains of Bellagio came out on top, beating out the Golden Gate Bridge, Grand Canyon and Broadway, among others.

No matter what song is playing or if it's daytime or nighttime, the aquatic marvel is a must-see for tourists.

"I've seen it like five times. It's way better at night," tourist Kylle Vitor said.

"There's always something new here. They change the music all the time. You never tire of it," tourist Denise Testa added. "It's our ninth time, and we love the fountains."

A marvel of engineering, the attraction inspires onlookers.

"They're different. They're peaceful. It tells a story without anything else – just the water and a little music," Testa said.

The fact that the fountains came in at the top spot surprised a few people. Still, they could understand the ranking.

"Someone was trying to do their best here. It's manmade – a stirring thing," tourist Ryan Conaty said.

TripAdvisor based the rankings on millions of reviews and opinions from travelers.

The No. 2 spot was given to the Gettysburg National Military Park in Pennsylvania, followed by the USS Arizona Memorial in Honolulu.
